Nice scores...  I'd like to line up some figures actually for customizing.  I'm hoping to get an RPG Indy or Deluxe Ark Indy and a regular Indy to do a Cairo Indy w/out jacket that's decent.  In general though, I'd love to have jsut about every figure from the line extra in some form for customs...  Especially that guy with the skull mask.  That's maybe the coolest fodder figure in the Indy line.

I scored a Snake Mutt, Cemetery Warrior, and Russian for $3.80 each at Target then turned right back around and returned my extra Indy's from the TOD case I ordered using the receipt. Whoever thought of that is a GENIUS.

I also saw the soft top Cargo Truck. Would have snagged it and some Battle Packs if they were on sale.

I bought a 12" whip-action Indy at Target for the clearance price of $10.48. It looks really cool with my other stuff. :)

Picked up another TLC Indy and Henry Jones, Sr. so I could make the boil-and-pop custom of Indy in a suit. Sorry, I can't give credit to the person whose post I saw this in, but thanks for the idea! It was REALLY easy and it looks really good.

I also picked up another Indy w/Ark deluxe hoping to do the head-swap with a spare Indy & Temple Swing figure, but the heads don't match. I thought the heads were compatible between the three deluxe figures. I guess it's just Ark Indy and Temple Trap Indy? I'm going to pop the head off my Temple Trap Indy to be sure, before I spend $9 on another Temple Trap set. I would like to make that easy custom Cairo Indy figure at some point.

I think I might go score a couple more Cairo Thug 2-packs - one of my local WMs is loaded with them.

After that, I think I'll finally put this line to rest, there's really nothing else I would need until they hopefully fire it up again for a fifth Indy movie.  :-\

Took advantage of the Target clearance today and filled the last few holes in the Indy basic figure collection. Bought Fertility Idol Indy, Hangar 51 Indy, Mutt w/Snake, and another Cemetary Warrior at $4.18 each.

Once the ToD wave I'm buying from Morgbug arrives I'll have every figure in the Indy line. Very cool, but kinda sad at the same time considering the line's dead. At least until Indy V that is. :'(

All that's left now for me is the second wave of Muggs, the EE exclusive Muggs, and possibly the Titanium Series....

All figs are $3.00 at Wal-Mart. I finished off the basic line snagging Cairo Indy, Dovchenko, an Ugha Warrior and found a Henry Jones for trade purposes.

Went to WalMart tonight to get some soda and other items. I stopped by the toy aisle of course and found a treasure trove of clearanced IJ figures!

I picked up: Cairo Swordsman, Monkey Man, Elsa Schneider, Colonel Vogel, TLC Indy and Grail Knight all for $3 and I also grabbed a Cairo Thugs 2-pack for $7.  ;D

Since this purchase netted me six more stickers, I'm going to get my butt over to the post office tomorow morning and send out one more Crystal Skeleton certificate, bringing my grand total on those up to 12. How many were in the chamber at the end of the movie, 12 or 13?

I'd love a Cairo Thugs 2-pack, but unfortunately there aren't any here.  :(  Was hoping to make some "bad guys" for my modern military figures to basically shoot at.  They're looking lonely on the shelf here.   :-\

I did, however, get about $70 worth of fodder tonight... 

I would love to find that 2-pack and Cemetary Warriors, and some Russians...  Unfortunately though, those aren't common here.  They're all great fodder, and none around.  Also not many TLC figures at all here...  Wouldn't mind finding some of those too.
